Well, it seems that the challenge is on!
It has been suggested (I think “challenged” really does describe it better) that I enter a project in the next contest. Since I try not to ignore the Universe when it pushes me towards something, I feel that it is my Spiritual obligation to accept the challenge. Yup, there it is in black and white for all to see. I have thrown my hat into the ring!!
Now, submitting an entry isn’t a problem. I just have to do something that is creative and/or has good workmanship. That just means that I need to “make it my own” and try my best. But doing a “justa” (just an entry) is not good enough. I need (for my personal growth) to put my full-fledged effort, pride and creativity into this project.
The product (the submission for the summer contest) is not my goal.
The process is my goal. It is my goal in life and is now a goal of the contest entry.
Where do I go from here?
1) I need to listen to the wood
2) I need to envision something, something that comes from my Spirit, that I can do and do well, and that speaks to the viewer, saying “I am a Wood Art Sculpture”.
And so the journey continues.
And the Universe smiles.
